On 13th of March 2010, five of our school students, namely Jananieswary Servai, Sarah Nur’Ain, Nur Diyana, Umar Hakeem and Izat, attended a workshop on deejaying at RTM Melaka. ‘I WANNA BE A DEEJAY’ workshop was organized by Traxx fm under Melaka fm. Throughout this workshop, participants were exposed and explained about deejaying. Firstly, we’d ice breaking activity. After that, deejays ‘Roundhead’ and ‘Double D’ of Traxx fm’s morning crew, presented two modules regarding deejaying. After giving us a clear picture of deejaying, all participants were given a chance to experience it by ourselves. We’re divided into a few groups and we’re to start our own production, which consist of recording and editing, after lunch. After the mouth-watering, delicious meal from Renaissance hotel, we started our production right away. All of us were on the edge of our seats. We’re told to come up with our own station name and tagline, a title for a particular programme, date and time and logo. Besides that, we were also told to choose a producer (representing the head of our group); the head of our station and talents-deejays etc. All participant were really cooperative.
The facilitators assisted us and helped us in editing our production. Later, each group were to present their station to all. We had no idea that this production was actually a competition. Both Jananieswary and Sarah’s group won the first and second prize respectively. Besides being able to make new friends, we also managed to obtain knowledge on deejaying and have loads of fun at the same time. Thanks to the English Department for giving us the opportunity to have a bash at deejaying.

Readers' Theatre in MOZAC

Readers' theatre is introduced in MOZAC to improve students' spoken language.It also helps students to gain more confidence in using the language. It's also hoped that the students will develop an interest in reading because the scripts are based on books written by authors like Roald Dahl and others. 4 Alpha students are the first group of students who are exposed to this new programme and here are some shots taken when they practice their lines. Later, the rest of the form 4 students are given the script of The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) and the form 1 students are given Which shoes to Choose.

Mind mapping in Class

Mind mapping is introduced in form 3 and form 4 classes this year. A reading passage on Urban Migration is given to students to read. Later, there's a Q & A session to check students' understanding. The teacher then shows how to mind map the first paragraph to students. Then, in pairs students mind map the second paragraph. The last two paragraphs are left for individual work. Using only the mind map as a guide, students then tell the class about the passage (individual & pair work). It's amazing how they can use their own words to retell the passage. As an enrichment activity, the students are asked to rewrite the passage using their own words in a paragraph. Students enjoy these activities as they can be creative,they can understand the passage well and are able to use their own words in describing the passage both in spoken and written language.
